Should I rent or purchase a wheelchair ramp?
If you are wondering if you should purchase or rent a wheelchair ramp, a simple rule of thumb is if you think you will need the ramp for six months or less, consider renting. It is even possible to rent a wheelchair ramp for one day for special occasions such as weddings, graduations or for a houseguest. Wheelchair Ramps can be permanent or temporary, depending on the needs of your home, business, church or school.
NSM offers National Ramps which are highly-rated, quality-crafted handicap wheelchair ramps which are available in different materials including wood, steel and aluminum. If you rent, that will be taken into consideration. One of our accessibility professionals can offer a free consultation to help you decide which material. We can measure and configure ramps which will custom fit your particular area and need. Since our ramps are crafted at the factory and modular in design so they can be quickly installed and used immediately. If your rental ramp turns into a longer-term need, we can use it to apply to purchase.
